Verdict

Many of these have had plenty of chances including Eagle Canyon, who was again one-paced on soft ground at Fairyhouse on Sunday. Fred Fenster finished just in front that day and looks certain to confirm the form as he was staying on strongly over the 6f trip. GLOR NA MARA is comfortably the pick on form as he's been racing at a much higher level including when not beaten far in a Group 3 at Leopardstown. Prospective punters will need to put a couple of poor efforts in mid-summer out of their minds but hopefully Jim Bolger's charge will have benefited from the break and can lose his maiden tag at long last. Solar Verde, who has twice disappointed when strongly fancied, could prove best of the remainder.
